Concannon Miller is very proud to be a winner of the 2017 Societas Award for Responsible Corporate Conduct, a prestigious ethics award.
Presented by DeSales University’s Forum for Ethics in the Workplace, the award honors businesses that demonstrate responsible corporate conduct through legal compliance, corporate and individual accountability, commitment to stakeholders, and social responsibility. Concannon Miller was the mid-size company award winner.
“This year’s winners and finalists demonstrate the highest levels of ethical standards within their organizations and provide models for businesses of any size to follow,” Kevin Flemming, president of Integrity Personnel and chairman of the award committee, says. “We are excited to share their stories and share their example that ethical practices and business success are not mutually exclusive.”
Concannon Miller President & COO Ted Witman says being recognized for strong ethics is among the top honors a company can receive.
“We are incredibly honored and thrilled to have received this award,” he says. “Trustworthiness is our company’s most important core value and we’re very pleased it is being recognized by such an esteemed organization.”
High standards are taught to all Concannon Miller employees, through regular ethics and technical tax and accounting law training. The firm’s commitment to ongoing training and development far exceeds the industry standards.
“We recognize that our commitment to ethics and integrity must be lived out every day in everything we do. It is a very humbling experience to win an award such as this, and a call to all within the Concannon Miller family to maintain high ethical standards in the future,” Witman says. “Our shareholders and employees are up for that challenge. We have exceptional people who hold themselves to high ideals, especially in the area of ethics.”
The Societas Award also recognizes the company’s professional development opportunities and community service. More on the firm’s ethical practices can be found here in a video about the award.
